[orcmid] 

I had a machine with AOO 4.1.1 installed.  It still had hwp.dll installed.  That hwp.dll file
was dated 2014-08-03.  I installed AOO 4.1.2 en-US (from the official archive) on Windows
10 and the file hwp.dll is no longer there.  The install did not retain any of the AOO 4.1.1
files.

If there is an hwp.dll in the project-distributed AOO 4.1.2 German Language version, there
is a problem.

Please confirm that your hwp.dll was not installed by AOO 4.1.2 (which has files dated 2015-10-21).
